A visit to the Lister Helicopters base today in the backblocks near Milton found all their fleet in residence comprising Hughes 369E ZK-HFT2 which was imported new in 1991 and acquired by the company in 2013

Hughes 369E ZK-HZP2 which was imported from Japan in 2003 and acquired by Lister in 2011.

Bell 206B ZK-ITN which was imported from Japan in 2019 by the company.

And the latest addition, Hughes 269C ZK-IRG2 which the company imported from New Caledonia earlier in 2021.

Fiordland Helicopters has the transport contract for the Hump Ridge Track and bases the helicopters involved at Otahu Flat north of Tuatapere.   These comprise the Hughes 369D ZK-IMT which was imported from the US in 2007 and acquired by the company in 2020.

And AS350B2 ZK-HYA3 which is leased from Action Helicopters, being originally imported new in 2009 as ZK-HQG3.
